In preparation for the new signalised intersection at University Way – Sippy Downs Drive, major construction works are required.  This includes extensive works along a section of University Drive. To minimise inconvenience to the community, the project team is committed to retaining traffic flow along University Way and Sippy Downs Drive and has scheduled the start of works to take advantage of part of the Queensland school holidays and University of the Sunshine Coast semester break.

Works will take place from late June and continue through to mid-August. Construction will include day and night works from 7am – midnight.

For safety reasons and to enable construction to take place as quickly as possible,  temporary changes to traffic conditions are required. This includes part of University Way reducing to two lanes (one direction of traffic each way). We request that you allow extra travel time as a precaution during this time.

Please refer to the attached Construction Notification for further details and a map of the changed traffic conditions.  Signage will also help to direct motorists.
